Galaxies orbiting hyper-luminous galaxy

The discovery sheds light on how exceptionally bright galaxies form.

Most galaxies appear to foster a supermassive black hole in their centres as part of their evolution.

These gravitational monsters eat nearby gas and stars on occasion.

Some galaxies are thought to go through a period when they are very dusty and 'active' in terms of star formation.

Ginolfi and his colleagues concentrated on W0410-0913, one of the brightest, most massive, and gas-rich galaxies in the distant universe.

The energy from starlight and the central black hole heats the dust.

As a result, these galaxies are known as hot dust-obscured galaxies (also known colloquially as "hot DOGs").
